What is the reason for my right foot pain ?

Hello I m a 26 year old female, and this past few months off and on, the top of my right foot will start hurting, and I have just noticed this last time that it is a bit swollen and VERY tender to the touch.. Actually it hurts with out touching it. I haven t injured myself in any way. When it has been happening it lasts about one to two weeks then goes away for a week or two. I have tried soaking it in hot (as I could stand) water and tried elevating it and also tried keeping an ice pack on it... But nothing seems to make it feel better. I m scared please help?

I have had custom foot orthotics for the last few years. They have really been helpful in reducing my foot and calf pain. However, more recently I am experiencing pain on my dorsal right foot over the extensor digitorum longus (EDL) tendon branches and tenderness where the EDL tendon passes in front of the lateral maleolus. These symptoms increase when I lift more than 3-4 lbs. Might an adjustment in my orthotic help with this problem?

Please direct this question to an ortopedic surgeon and/or an alternative medicine specialist. i m a 57 y.o. male, outta shape and overweight with two dislocated shoulders - one worse than the other (supposedly 3rd degree seperation/subluxation) but both give me chronic pain. the worst one has the classic hump where the bone has popped up out of the joint it s the worst but, the other one gives me quite a bit of pain too. all i have for pain is ibuproffen(handfulls) acetaminofen, and alcohol. My Dr. had breifly prescribed Gabbapentin which like Tylenol wasn t much help, essentially negligible. Some years back i had convinced a VA surgeon to do the standard operation but, upon researching it, i learned that only 50% of the time was it effective and of those, 50% developed arthritis in the shoulder. I need some real options/alternatives Doc. Been living with chronic pain for 15 years - not to mention the lack of funtionality. Any suggestions?
